STABBING AFFRAY. – A very serious stabbing affray, which will probably result in the death of the injured party, occurred yesterday morning, at an early hour, in the upper end of Sidney, near Camp Winder. It appears that a youth named Thomas McCarrack, residing near by, had an altercation with Robert Jasper, another youth, during which the latter drew a knife and stabbed his antagonist in the lower abdomen, inflicting a wound which it is thought by his physician may result fatally. The wounded party was removed to his mother’s residence.
